The Oregon Employment Department’s occupational employment projections through the year 2027 include the latest trends in new and emerging jobs in Oregon. Projections provide the expected growth rate and annual openings for 724 different occupations from 2017 to 2027. Occupations generally include numerous types of jobs, from old familiar job titles, to new job titles that may not even exist yet. In many cases, new and emerging jobs are reflected within the fastest growing occupations.

Many of the fastest growing occupations are in health care as the sector adapts to new technology, new ways of providing health care, and an aging population. While the overall number of jobs in Oregon is expected to grow 12 percent from 2017 to 2027, health care related occupations are expected to grow 19 percent.
